MMM #41: 5 Scary Things About Money

What are the thoughts that you think about your money? Did you know there are scary things when it comes to money? Don’t worry! There’s no need to fear. Your past with your money does not define you. You can reframe your thoughts to make the right decisions with money, instead of letting your fears take you down the wrong path. That’s what today’s post is all about!

What You’ll Learn:

In this episode of Money Meets Medicine, ”5 Scary Things About Money,” you’re going to learn what the five things are and:

  • Why you shouldn’t be scared of your past mistakes, you can make new decisions!
  • You have the ability to get out of debt!
  • You don’t need to feel the guilt of wasting money.
  • Your thoughts control your outcomes with money.
  • And more!

Quotes To Remember:

“Don’t be scared that if you’ve made poor financial decisions in the past, unfortunately like Jimmy got taken advantage of with the insurance piece or maybe you have as well, don’t let that dictate what’s going to happen in the future.”

“The past is the past, the past has already happened. You can’t change it. But right now what you’re doing is you’re letting your past mistakes dictate your future actions and where you are and how you feel right now, which is insane when you stop and think about it.”

“if you don’t know where you’re walking, you’re just going to start walking on aimlessly… And I think when you start actually putting this down and going, okay, I’m going to think through these things. This is why I’m going to pivot to, you’re going to realize when it’s all said and done that money is not the most important resource and it’s time.”

“While money is not the end all be all, it is a tool and it does help you get the time and the life and the things that you want in terms of designing a life. It is not the purpose. Money’s not the purpose, but it is valuable. It is worth it.”

    Thanks for answering my question!

    Great episode as always. I relate to what you both are talking about so much. A lot of what held me up from learning about my finances in the first place was the fear and embarrassment of how much I had messed them up. But by facing those mistakes I actually didn’t feel fear but rather empowerment and hope. It was the first step towards making things better.

MMM 88: Do Doctors Really Need Emergency Funds?

MMM 88: Do Doctors Really Need Emergency Funds?

Physician turnover is high, specifically after the first 2-5 years of training. With doctors changing jobs so often, it is important to establish an emergency fund early on (and to consider the cost of leaving a job in medicine).

So today we wanted to dive into why everyone, including us, says you need an emergency fund, where you should put that money, what to use it for, and what NOT to use it for. We are also going to do some real talk on doing the math BEFORE you decide to either change jobs or leave medicine altogether.
